D-COAX Inc. has introduced a reconfigurable probe station (Model W4.0 x L6.5) for design engineers and technicians. It’s used to test a chip or small circuit board for the project that cannot wait for local lab probe station availability. The probe station has a small footprint (X = 22 in, Y = 9 in, Z = 8 inch) and can be used at the desk or a lab. It is transportable at 9 pounds.

The probe station is fully manual with the following features:

  • 4.0 inch x 6.5 inch test plate with vacuum holes
  • wide probe holder plates on each positioner with multiple holes for probe mounting
  • both positioners can slide back and forth in the X and Y directions and can be moved toward the DUT at the angle
  • the height positioning is accomplished via digital micrometers
  • each positioner can be locked independently.
  • Magnetic plates attach to the normal probe mounting holes to allow additional magnetic XYZ positioners with fine adjustment
  • probe arms are adjustable in the X, Y, Z, and theta.

The probe station is compatible with all standard wafer probes and many DC needle set-ups. See a video at the company’s website. All D-COAX products are made in the USA.
